The Netflix series Lockwood and Co has been cancelled by the streaming service after just one season.
Helmed by the same mind behind such hit movies as Attack the Block and The Kid Who Would Be King, Joe Cornish’s series Lockwood and Co amassed a good following on Netflix over its first season run but wasn’t able to conjure the support for a second series. The show followed a small startup business run by two boys and a psychically gifted girl and is based on the first two books in Jonathan Stroud’s books series: The Screaming Staircase and The Whispering Skull.
In a statement regarding the ceasing of Lockwood and Co, Complete Fiction said that producing the show had been “one of the most rewarding experiences of our careers,” thanking the streaming service, the show’s production team and the many fans of the series across the world.
The full statement reads: “With heavy hearts, we announce that Lockwood & Co. will not be returning for a second series. Making this show was one of the most rewarding experiences of our careers and we will forever treasure it. Being trusted by the supremely talented Jonathan Stroud to adapt his outstanding series of books was an honour and a privilege. Working with him as closely as we did across the development, production and release of Lockwood & Co has made him a friend, and part of the Complete Fiction family, for life”.
